Jean-Étienne Liotard (1702–1789): Swiss Master, June 13 through September 17, 2006
A prolific pastelist, painter, and miniaturist who traveled throughout Europe and the Near East, Jean-Étienne Liotard is one of the most fascinating, yet least familiar, artists of the eighteenth century. Although Liotard enjoyed an international reputation in his own time, today his work is relatively little known outside his native Switzerland, even among specialists. The Frick Collection is pleased to present the first monographic exhibition in North America devoted to this intriguing artist.
